Third Radio Issue


Recommended Posts


I am trying to use a 

Edimax Technology Co., Ltd EW-7811Un 802.11n Wireless Adapter [Realtek RTL8188CUS]

This either crashes the pineapple or won't scan for networks.

Is there any reason this device is not supported?

drivers might not be on the nano to save space on the device itself and keep the firmware small because there is very little space

Do you know which kernel module you need for that NIC?

Whats the output of ' lspci -k '?

For example on my system, which btw is not a pineapple just a normal linux box..

user@host:~$ lspci -k
04:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation Wireless 8260 (rev 3a)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Dual Band Wireless-AC 8260
        Kernel driver in use: iwlwifi
        Kernel modules: iwlwifi

you could figure out what driver that uses [Realtek RTL8188CUS] for openwrt and just do a $opkg update and then $opkg install yourdriver.

The issue here is most likely power consumption. Power your TETRA via the included wall plug and try then.

Small issue it’s a Nano ?

Dont think it’s a power issue as I can power a more juice alpha.
